Joey Chestnut sets record at Nathan's hot dog eating contest

- With a whopping 70 hot dogs and buns consumed, Joey 'Jaws' Chestnut won the 2016 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on Monday.

Chestnut beat Matt Stonie by 17 dogs. Both men are from San Jose, California.

Chestnut's 70 dogs were the most ever eaten at a competition. In 2013, he set a world record by eating 69 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes.


Chestnut, 32, had won eight straight competitions in a row before losing the Mustard Yellow International Belt to Stonie last year in an upset.

Contest officials said Chestnut set a new record last month when he ate 73 1/2 hot dogs and buns during a qualifying event.
